P-iD vs π-eD is a movement class and participatory performance by Rachel Cheung, led by Piedad Albarracin Seiquer as a simulated AI.


Enter a physical learning environment to follow instructed lessons by an ‘Ai’ character on three screened monitors and ‘Pi’, a live human instructor. These two authoritative roles - irl human and digital copy - both call for attention, stacking up an array of instructed activity. This cognitive pattern play is reflected in graphic scores that map movement throughout the green-glowing space.

P-iD vs π-eD is a collaboration between Rachel Cheung and Piedad Albarracin Seiquer, which probes human cognitive and agility functions in a world of online self-learning cultures.


Opening Sunday 21 October with two participatory performances, sign up details below. 

Drinks will be served from 19:30 onwards, when the exhibition can be viewed as an installation.
